All COBOL data items may be larger than 64 KB in size, with some minor limitations:
- A file's maximum record size is 64MB, so no data item in the FILE SECTION may exceed 64MB.
- A data item with a size greater than 64KB may not be given a VALUE phrase.
Data items larger than 64KB may be used with most verbs, and data items larger than 64KB may be reference modified.
Note: Earlier versions of ACUCOBOL-GT have different limitations. Refer to the appropriate version of your ACUCOBOL-GT documentation
